Lorraine Warren, whose profession as a paranormal investigator inspired the film The Conjuring, has died.

The New England Society for Psychic Research announced Friday that Warren "died peacefully in her sleep at home (Thursday) night".

Warren's death was announced on Facebook by her grandson. In 1952, the Warrens founded the New England Society for Psychic Research, whose sole objective was to shed more light on supernatural events like hauntings.

In view of her 224,000 followers, she wrote: "My dear friend Lorraine Warren has passed". Lorraine Warren described herself as a trance medium. And years later, when the film was being shot, Lorraine Warren had visited the set and spent considerable time at her CT home with actress Vera Farmiga, who portrays Warren in the movie and its sequels.

Warren maintained that her faith anchored her in a life spent trying to rescue people from demons. We lost a friend and inspiration. Their success in paranormal cases led to the creation of a shared horror universe, which also includes the Annabelle series and two spin-offs - The Nun and The Curse of La Llorona.

Lorraine Warren was born in Bridgeport, Connecticut in 1927. For her. Because Lorraine is no doubt being received in Heaven as we speak, and she is finally reunited with the love of her life, Ed. Righteousness was her breastplate, and she has touched my life so.

Lorraine Warren attends the premiere of "The Conjuring 2" in Hollywood, California, on June 7, 2016. She'd go on to meet her husband Ed at the age of 16. "She was my angel and my hero, and she will be deeply missed", McKinnell wrote.

Without Lorraine Warren we'd never have Annabelle or the Amityville Horror to haunt our nightmares.

The Annabelle doll is real - and is kept in The Warrens Occult Museum. I feel very fortunate to have met her, gotten to know her and her wonderful family, and I'm truly honoured to have been the one to showcase a slice of her incredible life story to the world. "I was 16 at the time and she was 16, one night I walked her home and asked her for a date". "And for that, all I can say is that it is my absolute honor to have been able to share the joy, knowledge, wisdom, mentorship and humanity that I experienced with her with all of you". She WAS love. And with that love and compassion, she changed the world many, many times.
